Benefits of Wood Pellets as Fuel

PHA Wood Pellets Are Clean, Dry And Efficient… Non-polluting & 100% Natural

The issue of climate change is forcing society to ‘decarbonise’ the economy, with new solutions required for energy, transport and land management. The use of renewable energy is essential if greenhouse gas reduction targets are to be met. One such source of renewable energy is biomass – most commonly recognized as wood pellets. Biomass removes carbon from the atmosphere during its growth phase (photosynthesis plus sunlight and water converts carbon dioxide into plant material and oxygen), creating a carbon neutral balance when the biomass is used as an energy source.

You know that burning wood efficiently is much better for the environment than burning fossil fuels. Better yet, PHA Wood Pellets are made from waste wood, so they effectively reduce products that previously polluted the environment.

When burned in a suitable pellet appliance, PHA Wood Pellets burn hot and efficient, giving off so little smoke that you don’t even need a conventional chimney. A 15kg bag produces only about a half cup of ash and almost no soot buildup, so say good-bye to creosote and chimney fires! There’s less cleaning of your heater too.

PHA Wood Pellets burn so efficiently, so hot and so long that you can often store a full winter supply in a 1m by 1m space.


Everyone knows that burning wood is a good source of heat. To help our environment, wouldn’t you rather use pellets, with far less carbon emissions than regular wood ? PHA wood pellets give you all the benefits of burning wood – but with much more efficiency. Firewood can be up to 48% moisture, so nearly half of what you pay for wood heating fuel ends up as steam.

PHA wood pellets are made from compressed waste wood, with less than 8% moisture. So, they burn cleaner, longer and provide you more heat. Save money, save trouble, save work – and help save our environment. You only need one resource to do all that…

Pellet burning heaters are simpler to operate and more convenient than other wood burning appliances. In fact, they are almost as easy to use as gas, oil, or electric heaters.

Pellet burning appliances rely on sophisticated computers and circuit boards to determine how much pellet fuel should be burned. Most models have at least three burn settings and some use thermostats to control the fire. They also use a forced air system to distribute heat. Pellet burning appliances are highly efficient and pollute very little.

Because these appliances burn wood so efficiently, some do not even need conventional chimneys. Rather, they use small diameter, easily installed venting. Pellet burning appliances need to be refueled less frequently than most other wood burning appliances.

To refuel, you simply pour the pellets into a hopper and they are transferred to the fire chamber to be burned as needed. A corkscrew shaped device, called an auger, transfer pellets to the fire chamber. Unlike other wood burning appliances, pellet heaters rely on mechanical air supply systems (usually a fan forced draft or induced draft system) to vent air from the home. The forced draft system uses a fan to force air up the vent into the combustion chamber. The induced draft system, sometimes called the negative pressure system, uses a fan to draw air from the combustion area through the exhaust system. Burning wood pellets with a pellet heater is usually convenient, neat and safe. These devices usually don’t require refueling more than once a day and the fuel is compressed and bagged for clean and easy storage and handling. Pellet heaters produce virtually no smoke, and produce less odor than other wood burning appliances.

With PHA wood pellets you don’t have to invest a lot of time or effort to maintain comfortable room temperatures. Good quality pellet heaters provide days of heat, virtually no smoke, and they let you utilize materials that were once simply discarded in landfills or left to rot after logging operations. With all these features, plus the benefits for our environment, it makes sense to use PHA wood pellets today.
